Sports Minister says when Super Eagles will Get New Coach

Super Eagles

John Enoh, the Minister of Sports, has announced that the Nigerian national football team, the Super Eagles, will soon have a new coach within the next two weeks.

Enoh stated that he has been in communication with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) regarding the appointment of a new permanent coach for the Super Eagles.

Following the expiration of Jose Peseiro’s contract after the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in February, the Super Eagles have been without a substantive coach.

Finidi George, the Enyimba coach and former assistant to Peseiro, took charge of the team in their recent friendly matches against Ghana and Mali.

Enoh shared this information during an interview on Channels Television’s Sports program on Thursday.

“Unfortunately, the senior national team doesn’t have a coach.

“The first responsibility of getting a coach lies with the NFF and I have been in touch with the NFF because I think Nigerians didn’t expect that after AFCON and after the contract with coach Peseiro came to an end and wasn’t renewed, that it will take as long and not have a coach yet.

“But NFF is conscious and mindful of our next qualifiers in June; what I can assure is that in the next one or two weeks at the most, that the senior national team will have a new coach.”
